and definitions. we've got governors of three states, christie, malloy, cuomo, those three states are talking about a new shoreline and maybe a new normal. maybe we need our folks at the weather channel to tell us, is this a 200-year storm or the start of 200 years worth of storms like this. >> is there a spirit of rebuilding here? do you hear frit the locals? have you been talking to some of the people there? do they want to roll up their sleeves, hard, painful, emotional as it is and rebuild? >> well, larry, i can only quote a fellow local, and that's chris christie, a governor who if you do what i do and still take your family to the boardwalk on weekends and seaside, point pleasant, it's a very good chance you'll see the governor of your state with his family as his parents took them there, because it's special to us, and he was saying he can't speak for all the privately owned places like this, a lot of the jersey shore, a lot of the boardwalks are a private concern. but boy, he wants to come back. this is part of the beating heart, the economic engine of the state of new jersey on down
's wicked snap. >> he is wicked snap. we'll also be talking about what chris christie thinks of president obama's and his reaction to hurricane sandy. >> but we want to say good morning to jacki schechner who is sitting in steph's seat. >> a good day to get rid of her. [ laughter ] >> president obama is declaring major disasters today in new jersey and new york, he has also declared emergency conditions in both virginia and west virginia. sandy is now called a post tropical cyclone. firefighters are also having to go in and use a boat to rescue dozens of people. about 6 million people are without power including a large section of manhattan. we don't think about these little things -- >> elevateorelevators. >> exactly. west virginia pummelled by snow which we'll talk more about. also seeing snowfall in pennsylvania, virginia and north carolina. now mitt romney is back pedalling saying he could not get rid of fema which is a direct contradiction to what he said during the primary debates. more than 15 hurricane sandy staff for fema are positioned along the east coast. th
will inspect the disaster scene along with governor chris christie, a top romney supporter. dan lothian is live in washington. good morning, dan. what is the president's message right now to storm victims? >> reporter: well, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on television. at the same time
what's happening there. this is the podium but moments later chris christie will be briefing his state. chris christie holding a press conference here that we'll bring you live here on cnn. a lot of people weren't expecting a storm this late in the season, and now the rush is on to get supplies. some storms already running low. people looking for bottled water, you are finding empty shelves there. look at that boat. trying to get them out and get them safe. despite mandatory evacuations in areas of new jersey, delaware, some people are bound to stay in their homes as they always do. and we know the answer to that, that's a bad idea, right? with me now, general russell honory, you commanded the military in new orleans as a general there, should people prepare differently for this storm than they do, because there are different elements with this, is there a different preparation for this storm? >> we have gone into this storm for the last few years since katrina to encourage people to have a three day's supply of food and water on hand for an event just like this. >> because usually whe
chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now people are hurting. >> that's right. there was a rumor yesterday that mitt romney might go to new jersey to survey some of the damage. chris christie was asked about that. he essentially brushed that off and wa't interested. he was interested in working with the president in relief efforts and didn't want to see presidential politics in new jersey. i thought that comment was more important that mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to stay away. >> chris, where does the situation of the campa
jersey and the president will tour the devastation with the chief executive new jersey chris christy. >> gretchen: when the president comes the city is shut down . the city can't have security detail and anything like that at all. but he will go to new jersey which is your home eric. >> i am trying to figure out why. i get it he wants to see the damage. please come can go and sign the check to help fema to sign over the money . chris christie was on saying that we have gotten acess to the funs we are going to need. i am not sure what touring the sight. >> steve: it is smart politics for the president. there is chris christie helping the people on the jersey shore. it is essentially politically if you talk about it he is coopting one of rom romm's visible surrogate and it is good for chris christie his state will go for barack obama example it is a win, win as the campaign starts today. chris christie was out and shook a lot of hand and a lot of people were waiting to see him there and there he was. watch this. >> you have to see the people that are affected by this. they need to see
alongside him will be governor chris christie. the election just six days away. and sandy unfortunately is not done yet. the superstorm is currently over pennsylvania, heading towards canada. cnn covering the story like no other network. rob marciano reporting for us, deb feyerick in new york, sandra endo and brian todd from new jersey and dan lothian is at the white house. wednesday, october 31st, "starting point" begins right now. >>> welcome back, everybody, our starting point is breaking news this morning in regents point, queens where we've soon showing you some of these pictures yesterday, that massive fire that burned 80 homes to the ground. when sandy hit new york city. cnn crew on the scene is reporting to us a strong smell of methane gas. a utility pole spontaneously burst into flames earlier this morning. officials are now assessing whether the gas levels there are excessively high in this neighborhood, and that could force those fire crews to evacuate. right now, 6.6 million people still without electricity across 15 states, and washington, d.c. nearly 2 millio
by this storm. >> yeah. i don't think we know all that's happened to the jersey shore yet. governor christie is going up in a helicopter and we're going to get our first pictures here this afternoon. we've had reports from point pleasant beach where the beach was essentially taken and spread through the town and then we've heard from atlantic city and seen where the boardwalk was ripped up and so forth. in the middle is long beach island and i haven't seen any reports from long beach island. what happened there is they were on the side of the storm where the water was pushed from the ocean in across the shoreline. farther south, down into maryland and delaware, much of the coast where they had some damage, they didn't have that hard push of water at high tide like good parts of the jersey shore did. so we're very, very fearful there and also on the south shore of long island. we also haven't seen that. so there is much more to learn about just those two areas let alone other areas spread around the northeast. >> and as you point out, the high winds, continuing high winds, and gusts are going
, take a look at this, christi. this is the most recent poll we did about a week ago. you can't get much closer among likely voters. mitt romney with a one-point edge, but that's all tied up in the sampling error. this is the first of three stops today for mitt romney across the state. he'll be campaigning with marco rubio, the popular freshman senator here in florida. we had this up on our website cnn.com. you can see how much attention florida is getting. both the candidates made well over 20 trips each here to the sunshine state since the start of the general election back in april. you can see both campaigns pouring in tens of millions of dollars to run ads in this state. 20 electoral votes up for grabs in florida. that's why both campaigns are spending a lot of attention on florida, christi. >> my home state of ohio, another critical swing state. what's it look like? >> reporter: oh, yeah. you think florida's getting a lot of attention? ohio's getting just as much, if not more. only 18 electoral votes in your home state, but you know what, here are the latest numbers. here is our br
donnell in virginia. chris christie in new jersey. even bobby jindal in louisiana. have praised the fact right now there is a close partnership between the white house and the governor's republican and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or
transit. governor chris christie of new jersey announced within the last half hour that the path trains that run between new york and new jersey, he expects they will be out for seven to ten days. seven to ten days, and that is going to make it very difficult for those commuters who come from new jersey to work in manhattan. it will make it very difficult for them to get to work. mayor bloomberg mentioned some of the bridges are open anding they' ing and williamsburg bridge, the manhattan bridge and the brooklyn bridge, they are now all open to traffic, but again, you know, the mayor says, look, if you don't have a reason to go out don't go out because it is a scene of destruction here in new york city. i can tell you that as i drove down here, down the island of manhattan i was struck by all of the tree limbs that are down, the scaffolding is down. there is debris everywhere and once you get below 34th street it is dark because that is where the power is out in lower manhattan. more than a quarter million people there are without power this morning and it has yet to be restored. that m
christie called it "de stating."devastating." beyond anything he thought he'd see. this is as the presidential campaign begin the final week. rick leventhal is on point pleasant beach. good evening, rick. >> reporter: this storm left 8.2 million homes in the dark tonight. including more than 2 million in new jersey and this entire community of point pleasant beach. the destruction here, up and down the new jersey coastline is de stating. the recovery is only just beginning. >> the level of devastation at the jersey shore is unthinkable. >> new jersey's normally unflappable governor chris christie stunned by the devastation in his state. the familiar atlantic city boardwalk in shambles. entire neighborhood washed over, as search and rescue crews scoop up stranded residents by the boatload. crews working around the clock to clear out debris field 7 feet high in some places. >> i anticipated last night given the nature of the wind and the rain, would be pretty baddism didn't expect it to be that bad. it didn't expect we'd see homes off of their foundations. in the mid
bloomberg is doing a great job. >> yes, and chris christie, governor of new jersey doing a great job. he is saying the president is doing a great job getting him everything he needs. >> thank god they are not playing politics. >> right. >> he is not standing on ceremony, what a great, great opportunity to show really that they can work together in times of emergency -- >> unlike mitt romney. >> well mitt romney doesn't have any opportunity right now to look presidential. he has nothing to do except for -- >> we're just talking about he is calling these things disaster relief when they are clearly political events. >> exactly. >> obama: i have spoken to all of the governors in all of these states we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema.
is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks

for the past two days. president obama will be looking at the devastation with dpgoverr chris christy in new jersey. let's get to todd gross tonight who is tracking the storm over the new york east. >> reporter: you may not believe this. sandy won't quit. if you look right here, there is a new belt of showers and thunderstorms that have formed. gusty storms that are affecting that wart of the country. even the north eastern united states on the coast line is in part of the storm. right in through chicago coming in through the great lakes that is where the winds are funneling in from the north. same winds edge of the storm that moved in on the coast line. that is number two. and three of course, we have a lot of air play in through here. let's zero in on west virginia. it is not only snowing there, they have had over two feet around 30 inches of snow. if you look at the video, from west virginia and from the western pan hand handle of mary they have had not only 30 inches of snow, but another foot that is going to come in the next 24 hours. even though the really big punch from sandy is over,

the damage today with governor christie, and coming in this morning, i heard -- i was listening to the radio and i heard a bunch of sounds from christie. >> he had gone to the shore yesterday. >> giving people hugs. the boardwalk is gone in a lot of places. we showed some amusement rides. kayla has spent two days in cape may. she's moved north to atlantic city where the damage is also extensive. hey, kayla. >> hey, joe. the president is scheduled to visit atlantic city here alongside governor christie. we'll be taking that live as it occurs. the brunt of the storm was born by the jersey shore. the entire state of new jersey still reeling. two million residents without power. and governor christie calling the damage incalculable. that's the job of officials as they start figuring out how to start repairing the damage that has occurred. some experts around the industry have tried to start putting a number on this. a disaster modelling agency forecast losses between ten and 20 billion dollars. a former economist with the international trade commission scored that much higher with losses up to $
linked this year's prominent foes, president obama andries and chris christie. both told reporters that they were determined to repair and rebuild the damage even as they praised each other's forms the crisis. >> the things we need to do is to make sure power is restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinking water hospitals are taken care of the way we need to and kids are back to school. i'm please to report that the president has sprung into action immediately to help us get us those things while we were in the car riding together. i appreciate that. he has worked extremely closely with me since the storm hit. this is our sixth conversation oversince the weekend. i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> obama: at the top of my list i have to say that governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart
christie and the mayor of atlantic city. governor said the mayor didn't follow the instructions properly, didn't work hard enough to get people out of the city. we had both of them on air last night, pretty much calling each other names. so i imagine there will be some phone calls this morning about what should have happened. but bottom line, our initial assessment of atlantic city right now, soledad, is it may -- it splay dodged the worst of it despite how bad it looked last night. >> it surely looked bad. thank you, ali, certainly appreciate it. we're going to head now to -- who's up next? peter king, congressman peter king, looks like he's ready for us. peter king is out in long island, and obviously long island took a big brunt of this storm. congressman king, thank you for your time. first tell me exactly the damage that you've seen. i haven't had a lot of live reports on what has happened in long island outside of my hometown, smithtown, which i know has lost power. can you tell me what some of the worst damage is? >> yeah, that's right. absolutely devastating. for instance, long b
jersey governor chris christie made some very, very dire assessments to what he expects the damage will be in atlantic city and on the jersey shore. take a listen. >> i think what we'll find, unfortunately, when we get to the jersey shore today is total devastation. and that's the real concern. because not only is it people's homes and private property but also you have the tourism industry in new jersey which is one of our biggest industries. we're going to have to work hard to make sure we're ready for next summer at the jersey shore. >> reporter: now, of course, the casino industry the biggest industry in atlantic city. those 12 flagship casinos have been closed throughout the week. they cost about $50 million in lost revenue during irene and the expectation was that because the season was a little bit softer, maybe it wouldn't be as bad. now it's clear that even though as christie called it the damage is incalculable right now it will be much steeper than irene. hopefully we'll get more from christie later. a few other buzz words, search and rescue teams went out at 5:30 trying
the block? >> reporter: president obama toured some of the damage with governor chris christie. >> i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. >> i can promise you that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials. and we will not quit until this is done. >> reporter: and then, there was halloween. many towns decided to postpone it. but some were not deterred. on long island, superheros and cats were out. and in new york city, even with the power out, trick-or-treaters took to the street. and within just a few hours, all three of new york's major airports will be back online, with la guardia beginning at least partial service at 7:00 a.m. this morning. rob? sunny? >> good news there, too. and in terms of the gridlock here in new york city. traffic very heavy as the mass transit system gets up and running. what about the scarcity of gasoline for commuters? >> reporter: that's a really big problem because everyone's trying to get into the city. and one of the things
